We are one of the largest faith-based health care providers in the United States. For 150 years, we have carried on a tradition of providing whole-person care that not only addresses patients' physical ailments, but also supports their emotional and spiritual well-being. We demonstrate the same level of compassion and care for our employees as well, doing all that we can to help them realize their full potential – both personally and professionally.
You are a compassionate, talented professional who wants to work in an environment where you can live out your faith and your values. You are excited about being part of a team that uses the latest technology and medical research to ensure patients receive quality care, but who also recognize that great care is always personal. You enjoy going out of your way to make each patient and their family feel special, and are passionate about guiding them toward optimal health.
AWARDS AND ACCOLADES
Our community is global and so is our reach. From coordinating medical mission trips in Ethiopia to planting school gardens in Orlando, we are constantly seeking ways to go beyond hospital walls in improving the health of our communities. As a member of our team, you will be encouraged to use your talents in fun, meaningful ways that bring joy and healing to people around the world.
Medical pioneers of the Seventh-day Adventist Church established an innovative health care program in Battle Creek, Michigan, in 1866, looking to the healing ministry of Christ for inspiration.
During a time when many medical treatments were as harmful as the diseases they were intended to cure, the revolutionary health care center not only treated diseases, but also taught people how to prevent them through good nutrition, exercise and hygiene. It was a place where each person was valued as a creation of God, and where caregivers created a healing environment focused on providing extraordinary whole-person care. Their commitment and philosophy continue today in hundreds of hospitals, nursing homes and clinics around the world.
Part of this worldwide network, AdventHealth was founded in 1973 to support and strengthen the Seventh-day Adventist health care organizations in the Southern and Southwestern regions of the United States. Today it is a national leader in quality, safety and patient satisfaction, comprised of 46 hospital campuses and more than 80,000 employees.
Although separated by geography, each of our facilities is united by the mission of Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ. Today we continue the tradition of whole-person care by practicing and sharing CREATION Health, a blueprint for living a healthy, happy life based on the principles given in the Bible’s creation story: Choice, Rest, Environment, Activity, Trust, Interpersonal relationships, Outlook and Nutrition.
Our Mission & Values
We exist to serve the needs of our communities in harmony with Christ's healing ministry and incorporate Christian values at every level of service.
We commit time, talent and financial support to educate our neighbors in the principles of illness prevention and healthful living.
We strive to meet or exceed both the service standards of the health care industry and the expectations of the patients we serve and measure our success through continuous surveying of patient satisfaction.
We conduct our business with integrity, honesty and fairness. As responsible stewards, we use our financial resources wisely by choosing business practices which are cost-effective, productive and result in a fair return on investment.
We are sensitive to the needs of the individuals and families we serve and meet their needs with kindness and empathy.
We value the diversity of our patients, employees, business colleagues and visitors and treat them with kindness and respect regardless of their background, race, religion or culture.
If you are new to nursing, we invite you to become the nurse you were meant to be. Our Nurse Residency Program is designed to help you make a smooth transition into the hospital and specialty unit of your choice. Along the way, you can count on us to provide the support, training and mentorship you need to become the nurse you were meant to be.
Some of our program benefits include:
"I have enjoyed the residency program because I feel that the instructors are there for me, and I was given plenty of time with a clinical coach before going it alone. I have and will continue to recommend this program to any nurse with limited nursing experience. It is a great program and will only help a new nurse hone in on the clinical skills needed in everyday nursing practice."
- Jackie, AdventHealth Tampa
I get to geek out about and do what I enjoy, have a boss that understands work/life balance, and my immediate team members are wonderful. I work in a very professional and respectful environment, and I can speak freely and honesty about concerns with my leaders.
From my experience, none... but I’ll acknowledge that may not be the same for other teams under other leaders.
Advice to Management
Focus and invest on making all your mid-level managers great managers, who manage consistently with your vision. Many managers are already there, or pretty close. Some could use some help.
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at AdventHealth (Altamonte Springs, FL) in January 2017.
There were 4 different rounds. Phone, meeting with the supervisor and manager, meeting with the manager and director, and then meeting with the vp of finance. It was a lengthy process, but everyone was extremely nice.
